In what’s being dubbed the worst natural disaster Texas has ever seen, Hurricane Harvey has resulted in up to five fatalities, citywide damage of astronomical proportions and frightening levels of flooding of the state’s most heavily populated city of Houston.
The storm is now estimated to reach up to 50 inches of potential flooding, which would also record it as one of the worst flood catastrophes in the nation’s history. As social media users from all over the U.S. and citizens suffering the storm provide updates and share relief resources, music celebrities have also stepped forth to send prayers and help to the residents of Houston. From H-Town natives like Beyoncé and Travis Scott to artists that come from Texas’s southerly neighboring states like T.I., the hope is high for the passing of Hurricane Harvey and the physical, mental and emotional recovery of all those who call Houston their home.
See the love that these celebrities are showing to H-Town amid the storm below.

We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.
